Develop a girl,
change a community.

What is Girls Academy?

Girls Academy has been empowering girls and changing communities since 2004. Our in-school mentoring and leadership program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls is the largest of its kind in the country.

We’re changing Australia’s future, one girl at a time.
